Wreath Sales
Northborough Boy Scout Troop 101 will be conducting its annual wreath sale on Saturday, November 29th (the Saturday after Thanksgiving). These beautiful, freshly made balsam wreaths are on a 12" frame (about 16" overall) decorated with a festive red bow, and again this year will cost only $10. Proceeds from this sale will fund troop activities for the year.

Boy Scouts in uniform will be canvassing much of the town door-to-door from 9:00am until 2:00pm. Residents can alternatively sign up on our website for home delivery or pickup at the Melican Middle School between 9:00 AM and 1:00 PM on Saturday, November 30th.

To help ensure there are enough wreaths for all who want them, we are offering a pre-sale online reservation. No money is required until delivery (at your home) or pick-up at Melican Middle School. Sign up is easy! Sign up online by November 28, 2014 and leave your address. Delivery will be on Saturday morning or early afternoon. Alternatively, pickup at Melican Middle School is available from 8:30AM to noon. The cost is $10 per wreath.

Pre-order your wreath now!

Webelos Invitation to Troop Meetings
December 4th and December 11th    Troop 101 has selected 2 Thursday night Troop 101 Meetings for Webelos II to attend: December 4th and December 11th. Webelos II and parents should select ONE of the 2 meetings to attend.

At these meetings Troop 101 will conduct the normal meeting agenda and special events with Webelos II participation. It should be a fun evening for the Webelos. Please signup online for the meeting you wish to attend.

Medical Forms
   As we start a new school/Scout year, I am currently going over the medical forms. I will be sending emails to those scouts and and leaders who have medical forms that have or soon will expire. I would like to get everyone converted to the newest forms over the next year. The new form is currently on the website, or I can email a copy or the link to you.

Please as always make sure the forms are filled out completely. Form A should have both Scout and parent/guardian signature and date. Form B should have all vaccination dates written on it as well as any medications taken if applicable. Form C must be filled out by the physician, signed and dated by the physician. Please also include a front and back copy of the insurance card.

If your son (or yourself for leaders) has a physical coming up its a good idea to bring a copy of form C with you to have the doctor fill it out then.

Any adults who plan on attending any troop activities will also need medical forms on file with the troop as well.

The new forms have less pages and are more streamlined.

Any questions, please call, text, or email me.

Permission Slips
General Info   In order to improve the accuracy of our trip planning, we are asking that all participants signing up for any camping activity to register via our Troop 101 website first. By doing so, you will be helping us accumulate accurate participant counts used in making reservations, purchasing food, and other trip plans. After registering on line, please remember to print out the related permission slip and related packing list. The completed form along with the required fee should be submitted at the next troop meeting. We will try to have a computer available for sign ups at each Troop Meeting. Thank you.

Scout Closet
    Hi Parents, Just a reminder that I am available for scout purchases and trade ins anytime by phone or email. You can also use the scout closet order form to order the items you would like and I will bag them up and get them to your son at the following weeks meeting

I do work from home so I am happy to help you out on off times as well. We have a number of used items available right now and are looking for more. If you have outgrown scout items at your home we hope you will consider donating them to our recycling program. In return we will issue you a small credit to be used for your own scout closet purchases. We are looking for Class Bís, uniform shirts, pants and shorts, hiking boots, scout hats, and anything else you think might help another scout. When donating please put in a bag with your sons full name so I can issue them their scout closet bucks. Thank you to everyone who has been sending things in!

I will be at the Court of Honor for both purchases and donations.

***We are now also trying to help cub scout troops in town. If you have any cub scout uniform items you can donate it would be greatly appreciated there are some boys in town currently in need!

Thank you!
Sherry Clark

Baden-Powell thought for the day:
In Scouting, you are combating the brooding of selfishness.
